James Corden, just like Marmite, is Britain’s greatest ‘love it or hate it’ export. The controversial comedian, just like the sour spread, requires an audience with a rather acquired taste in order to get maximum appreciation.
Since moving to Los Angeles to host The Late Late Show in 2015, Corden has managed to transform himself from a D-list British star to an A-list Hollywood icon. Along the way, he has been supported by a hoard of loyal fans who can’t find fault with the larger-than-life comedian.
But, whilst he may have made many friends in the industry, the 39-year-old talk-show host has also made a lot of enemies.
Before he even made the leap across the pond, Corden had had many public clashes with high-profile figures. How could we forget his 2010 on-stage scrap with the legendary Sir Patrick Stewart?
If you don’t remember the cringe-worthy moment, then watch it here. Get ready to feel uncomfortable…
It only got worse for the charismatic comedian when former Oasis frontman, Liam Gallagher, called him a “k**bhead” in an interview with GQ magazine.
Rather awkwardly, Gallagher appeared on The Late Late Show shortly afterward to promote his new album. “That’ll be awkward,” the rock and roll star told BBC Radio 2, before adding: “I ain’t singing in no car. I refuse to do it, I’m not doing it, mate. I’ll sing the tunes, then I’m out of there.”
